We all experience this from time to time.
Some more than others.
So what creates anxiety?!
The mind plays a massive part.
Currently I am preparing my house for market.
I have decided to let go of the safety and security of my home to create my dreams with my beautiful partner.
But with a sick child and forms galore for another child I’m finding myself a tad overwhelmed.
The lists keep piling up of paper work. The shopping and just maintaining the basic needs of the family are banging in the background. My desire to get back into writing my book echos in the distance begging me for attention. Bills and reminder notices, time restraints all pushing me to the brink of confusion. I FEEL ANXIOUS!😬
How do we cope when we are constantly inundated with life chores ‘to do’ and complete by a schedule?
How do we slow the mind and calm the heart when we are continuously pushed by our lives, to do more and to be more?
How can we find peace in a world that has us by the short and curlies, dragging us one way and then pulling us swiftly back to another?
The idea of zen and meditation seems like a distant dream when we are all pushed to the limits with time and it’s constraints.
And then..... at the end of the day, the brain is fried and worn and a glass of wine 🍷 seems like the only respite from this god forsaken world fuelled by ‘doing’!
🍷 Sip....And then the mind slows, 🍷 sip, the joy comes, sip🍷, the feeling of warm zen begins to cover the stress and warm the heart, 🍷 sip!
🍷 The mask that covers the anxiety and pain of a mind fuelled world of doing, doing, doing!
Anxiety is created from excessive thoughts, busy lives and also being in a state of action.
Well I say STOP! 🛑
🛑 STOP the demands we put on ourselves.
🛑. STOP caring about the expectations society inflicts on us.
🛑. STOP worrying about what we can not control and just be in the present moment to support that sick child.
🛑. STOP going above and beyond for other people
START COMING BACK TO YOU!
💖START honouring what feels right for YOU!
(Not what everyone else thinks you should be doing.)
Ask your heart a question, should I ? .......
does it tighten with Anxiety?
..... This is then a NO! 🛑
Does your heart feel warm to the question?
This is a YES! ✅
Live by this gift of heart conversation everyday and you will find your way to a life of ✌🏼 PEACE!
